The Orastrana lab started its activity in 1993 from the mind of Carlo Natali (Cnat) and Marco Corsetti, which main goal it's the dedication to poetry and to improvvisation music.

"Camerino, 2006-07-21 (w.i.p. 6.5)" is an instrumental album for travellers who are not in a hurry, a 74min sonic adventure, composed as it were both an initiation and a separation voyage, starting from an old riff that slowly crumbles into a chaos, that instead of imploding, suddenly glances towards landscapes trailing themselves with no hurry.
This session has been recorded alive on 21st july 2006 afternoon by Carlo Natali (electronica, dubs, radios) and Mauro Rocchi (electric basses) in a nearly perfect loneliness, at Tony Gazzosa's "lair" in Camerino MC (Italy), a perfect shelter from the stifling heat of that summer.
As for the other recordings, even there we can find the traditional Orastrana brand: no overdubbings. the recording faithfully follows the exact content of the session, from the beginning till the end.
So, as the first work in progress represented in 2004 the re-birth of the Orastrana, this piece of music represents an important milestone for the band's history.
That is the moment when the new musical adventure of the band starts, from that moment onwards it definitely turns towards the ancient psychedelic adagio of the poet Corsetti: "first class trip for anywhere".
The net-album contains a musical tribute by Thomas Graber, a big absent unfortunately in that occasion, but who wanted to leave a sign by giving a sequence made on purpose for that performance, where he works out again an old recording of Carlo Natali's voice.
